    Good Morning All,

    I hope everyone is well. Thank you all so much for putting my mind at ease - I'm feeling sooo much better about everything now! Thankfully Sarah reminded me about my cycle length and when I went back to calculate everything, it does work out, so I'm not worrying about it anymore. What will be will be anyway, so there's no point getting myself worked up as much as I have been - it's just not me. I'm usually so in control of everything and at the ob appointment, DH was extremely worried about me. My bp was through the roof and apparently I was babbling on about god knows what - he'd never seen me like that before. It was a bit of a wake up call though - need to try and control my emotions a little better!!!!



    Kate - Happy Anniversary for Saturday - I'm sure you'll have a great day!! Your *symptoms* are sounding pretty good too - fingers crossed for you - I'm feeling good things are in store and sending you heaps of *babydust*.

    Sez - I'm so sorry your charts are all over the place. I'm afraid I don't understand all the charting so I can't really offer much advice, other than to hang in there. Getting things back to normal after the m/c is the worst. Lots and lots of for you sweety!!! I must say also, that I think the creamy cm you were getting the other day is a good sign - I know I had that leading up to getting the BFP, so you never know.

    Lisa - Things are sounding fantastic for you honey!! What an amazing naturopath you have. I'm looking forward to your announcement of a BFP very soon!!! Thanks for asking about me too - I'm doing sooo much better today and bought my scan forward a couple of days, so I only have to wait a week and a half now!! It's booked in for Tuesday week.

    Megan - I'm soo sorry af didn't arrive completely. It's the worst thing in the world when that happens. Try not to stress too much, my body was exactly the same, everytime I thought af had arrived, it would stop again - I didn't even get a full day of bleeding. It just knocks you down every time. I'm thinking of you sweety.

    Belle - Thanks for all your support!! I hope you O soon - better get DH ready for a whole heap of BD'ing You've just gotta catch that little eggie this month - we soo need another BFP in here!


    Tanya - I'm secretly hoping af doesn't show for you and the little blue spermie managed to sneak on through - how great would that be!!! It does sound as though your spirits are high and all is going well, so hang in there!! Great to see you're all ready to go if af does arrive though - I'm sure you'll get that little blue bundle growing inside you very soon!! All the best sweety!

    Michelle - I'm so glad you're still hanging around and hope you're feeling a little better. I agree with the other girls, definitely not bad luck to accept baby supplies - it so sweet of your friend to want to give them to you and no-one else. Maybe it will bring some good luck to you - you absolutely deserve it.

    I'm so sorry for those of you that I missed and hope all is going well. As I mentioned above, I'm feeling much better about everything now and I'm trying so hard to remain positive. What else can I do right?? I managed to bring my next scan forward a couple of days, so it's now only a week and a bit away - Tuesday week, so that's made me feel a little better. I don't want to bring it forward too much as then it's just a longer wait until my next ob appt in four weeks!! I've also decided that I'll go back to work next week (I'm supposed to be having Monday and Tuesday off aswell) and then the two days that they still owe me, I'll take the following week, on Monday and Tuesday (as my appt is on the Tuesday). So today is offically my last day of holidays. Kind of sucks really but at least then, in my mind, I'll only have to get through next week!!

    DH hasn't been too well lately either, so hasn't been much fun in our household!! I'm really tired too, I can't seem to sleep very well at the moment!! Well have a VERY dirty house to clean, so best I get stuck into it. Have been putting it off all week and sooo don't feel like doing it, but these things aren't going to get done by themselves!!!

    Take care everyone and I'm hoping we're going to see some BFP's in here VERY soon.

    Hi girls

    Just a quick one - no time for personals. A big hello to all of you lovely ladies. We are moving desks etc at work so for OH&S issues we have to be outta here by 1pm - whooo hooo.

    I am so premenstrual and feel as though af is going to hit any second, I keep running to the loo but.. i am having waves of nausea today so god knows what is going on there.

    I will try and post over the weekend and see how everyone is going and hope to hear some bfp's this weekend!!

    Keep well my pretty friends,
    Lisa

    GIRLS!! Quick get in here...I need your help....

    TMI Warning....

    Just went to the loo and there was a lot of mucous (EW looking & texture) stained with blood. Now...today is CD31, and according to me, it's far too early to be getting AF. When you guys fell pregnant, did you get any of this? I'm just wondering if it MAY be implantation...I don't really know...I'm just speculating and hoping....

    Can any of you luvlies shed some light for me? I never had any bleeding with either of my pregnancies.

    Luv 2 you all,

    Kate x.

    Hi Kate,

    Hmmmm - didn't have any bleeding at all but I did have quite a bit of CM the week before getting the BFP (well, remember I got a BFN, then a BFP). Sooooo, could be a very good sign.

    My fingers are crossed for you!!!!!

    Hi girls,

    just popping in quickly to say hello to everyone and spread a bit of baby dust around again.

    Lisa, When are you going to test?? Sending you positive baby thoughts!!

    Sez, Thanks for asking about me, im doing pretty good, having stressful days here and there but on the whole things are going well. I am going for my first scan next week so am looking forward to that (and dreading it at the same time). Thinking of you often chicky and i hope that your body sorts itself with a BFP!

    Kate, Not sure about the CM? GL though.

    Big Hello to everyone else, i hope that you are all well!

    Love Sarah xx

    OK guys I want in! Sorry to intrude but I really just need some advice re: TTC after m/c.
    AF has arrived after my second missed m/c nearly five weeks ago. GP sent me for "usual" battery of tests for recurrent m/c and they've all apparently come back normal. I'm scared
    s**tless but have to decided I might as well get back on the horse (pun intended!) I have an appmnt with an ob.gyn in November and am wondering if I'm being too impatient by not waiting until after I've seen him??!! BUT my GP seems to think there;s no reason why I shouldn't try now. I waited five months after the first one and that obviously didn't make a diff! Maybe this way I'll have something for the specialist to monitor??!!
    I'm temping and going to OPK as well to pinpoint O day-- might get GP /to refer for 7dpo prog. test as well? What do you think girls? Am I doing the wrong thing?
    Thanks in advance-- Hope you guys can squeeze in one more (I find it easier to read about and talk to BB than my close friends at the mo).

    Hey Everybody,

    Hope - Welcome to this lovely group of ladies where you'll laugh and cry right alongside with them. I have been in hysterics so many times in this forum and it's my personal favourite! If your Dr sees there is no problems in trying again, then hell girl, get your leg over that horse and ride! LMAO. Also, if you are charting & temping then it's good information/data to take along to the specialist appt in November. I really hope your stay here is short, in the nicest possible way of course.

    Lisa - You might think that AF is on her way, but guess what? she's not!!!! I just *know*. You cracked me up about your naturopath jumping around exclamining your ovaries are perfect. She sounds really *colourful*.

    Tanya - Good on you spending some time to yourself. You deserve it babe! I love the name Violet also but it's strictly off limits as my sister has had dibs on it for YEARS!!! I have a few names up my sleeve myself though. I can't use any more flower names because I had a Lilly cat & a Poppie dog so I can't go naming children any flower names.

    Kate - I sat on the computer nodding my head in agreeance when reading your post. I had mountains of creamy CM until I was around 12 w with this pg. I never noticed it with Jessica but I have had lots this time around and before i found out I was pg I actually thought I was going to O and had read the signs wrong when I actually had O'd. DYKWIM? So, I'm remaining very positive for you honey! Lets hope the HPT is as positive as me!!!

    Sez - My chart was crazy with this pg too and FF couldn't identify a O day so I'm really hoping that your chart is going to end up the same as mine!!!! BOL sweet-cheeks.

    Michelle - My drinking partner, where are you? I miss our funny chats. Have you delivered any babies at work today? I still think back to that day! How awesome!!! Have you had anybody ever had anyone present themselves in emergency with a bedroom accident??? LMAO. I have so many questions for nurses and doctors, it's a shame I don't have any personal friends who are so I can hassle with my questions! LOL.

    Me - I took my first round of belly shots today but I will not be having a pg ticker so I can't post it on there and I don't have a website so I can't post it on there but if anybody wants to have a laugh, send me your e-mail via PM so I can forward it on. I must warn you though, don't look at it before a meal, it will put you off. LMAO. While I was grocery shopping today, Jessica kept on reaching over and pulling my shirt up, when I asked her what she was doing she said 'Show Lady Baby' meaning she wanted to show the checkout lady I had a baby in my belly. How adorable, but how embarrassing too! LOL. I"m not impressed, Jessica woke up at 9:50am this morning after 2 hours up from 4am this morning coughing and so she wouldn't go down for a sleep this afternoon, so just now at 5pm she lays herself down on her winnie pooh couch and is catching some z's! I'm grrrr! There goes my blissful early night while DH is out fishing and she is in bed early! I'm going to be a cow of a mother and wake her up in a minny. That way at least she might go back down around 7:30pm. She's only been asleep 40 minutes, I'll get her up at 6. .

    Have a beautiful weekend everybody and lets hope that some eggies and spermies will meet up!!!

    Love Jayne

    Okay girls, before I get started on personals, I have to tell you that I threw up today! Now I never, and I mean NEVER vomit. I had nausea all day, starting from an hour after I got up, it disappeared before lunch, but then reappeared culminating in me losing my lunch! Mind, you I still felt very sick until about 6pm. Not like like I have a bug, but nauseous and SEEDY. Yes, of course this could be a very good imaginary symptom, and I shouldn't read anything into it, but I can't help myself! Hopeless chick that I am! Still got the creamy cm, which I'm gathering is a good sign? I hardly had any symptoms last time I was pg, only about 5 mins of nausea, and just felt very tired and bloated all the time, so I don't really know what to look for. Still got the crampy pains too, don't know if that is a good thing or not, and have had the tiniest bit of pink in my cm tonight. Also, I tested tonight with my least strong brand of OPK, which normally only gets ANY sort of line when O is just about to happen, and I got a faint line. That did happen last time and it sort of tipped me off. I read about using OPKs as early HPTs on this site, before I ever posted on here! Of course, now I just have to be patient, and wait until a decent testing day (thursday) or until af arrives.

    I know I sound like some sort of desperado, but if I can't share with you ladies, then who can I share with?! LOL

    BBL with personals!

    Looking *good* Sez (assuming vomiting is good ). We need some more heading to PAML and you are looking just the ticket!!

    Oh Jayney - I miss you so much!!! I am so excited that you are going well and have a nice little tummy to show for it. It would be so lovely to join you on the journey to babyland. I still have my fingers crossed although I am resigned to it not happening. As for the drinking ... half way through a lovely bottle of red No more babies lately but yes, I have had some *bedroom incidents* and some other funny stories that amuse us (and usually gross everyone else )

    A big hello to everyone else and I hope you all have a lovely weekend. Lots of baby dust to you all xx

    Hi Girls,
    Just trying to catch up on all that I have missed.
    Saturday is the only day that I get some time on BB.

    Still not up to date with all the replys, but I am still around.
    Will be back to have a crack at personals later today.

    Sez - I hope you chucking is a fantastic sign!!

    Megan - I'm fresh here to, and the girls here are really supportive.

    Me - BDing like crazy.

    Okay girls, I have convinced myself overnight that I am NOT pg. I think it's just way too much to hope for this crazy cycle, when we weren't even really trying! I guess you all know it's so easy to read into these *symptoms* and I just got carried away yesterday. Didn't I tell you all, once I got to the weekend, I knew I would be a wreck! LOL

    Mind you, although I didn't share everything with dh (don't want to get his hopes up too, and you know what males are like - so naive!),I did tell him about me chucking. Once he ascertained that I was okay, he didn't worry about it. About two hours later, he was in the shower and he called out to me. He asked "did we finally agree on ---- as the boys name?" I couldn't believe it! We haven't discussed anything like that for months! So I think he must be hopeful for this cycle too, but daren't ask too much!

    Okay, will DEFINITELY BBL for personals today!

    Sez honey - things are sounding pretty good. I'm still extremely hopeful that this is going to end in a BFP for you - sometimes things happen so much easier when you're not REALLY trying! It's so hard when it gets to that last week before testing - so many *symptoms* start appearing and all. Hang in there, we're all here for you!

    Paige - Great to hear from you again and hope all is well.

    Hope everyone else is well. I'm not bad today - have a bit of hayfever but other than that, feeling quite positive. Actually got some good sleep last night, for once, so all is great.

    Will BBL for some more personals!

    I hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful weekend!

    Lisa, you haven't mentioned testing yet. Are you going to test tomorrow? Please tell me to rack off if you're wanting to keep it quiet! It's just that I'm so nervous and excited for you! I am really that it all happens for you this cycle.

    Tanya, don't worry about jinxing me. I think I jinx myself! If this month isn't it, I'm going to start temping vaginally cos I'm sick of FF screwing up my O date. Maybe they are right, but I really have a good gut feeling on these things, and I usually trust my instincts. I must look into the pregnow tests, I take it they are online? I hope af has arrived! Good on you for going to the flicks, I love going on my own! (very antisocial, I know) Was the film good?

    Kate, I'm sure those rabbits are purely green! Congratulations, and enjoy your anniversary. I can't wait for our 1st wedding anniversary! I think I'm going to have to renegotiate our test date. You'll see why at the end of my post.......Your symptoms are sounding pretty ace, so I hope you're willing to reconsider!

    Sarah, what day is your scan? I want to know so I can be thinking of you at the time! All the best sweetie, can't wait to hear the results! BTW I seriously hope you are enjoying that beautiful weather over there! It's gorgeous here today too, but you know how much I love WA!

    Hope, if I were you, I would be going for it! As you said, waiting didn't help you last time, and you'll feel so much better if you can get back into it again (take it from someone who knows!) Ultimately, it's your decision. You will know when you are ready to ttc again. If that's now, then get bding girlfriend!

    Jayne, thanks for telling me about your crazy chart....look at you now! Jessica sounds sooooooo adorable!

    Great to hear from you Michelle, I hope it was a *good* vomit too! I hope you are going well, enjoy that wine! I think I'm going to miss it next time! Last time it didn't bother me one iota, but I have gotten quite into wine of late (seeking solace at the bottom of a bottle LOL!) so I think it might be more difficult!

    Paige, good to hear from you, glad that you are bding like crazy! Those spermies and eggie will have no chance but to meet up and get it on! Where do you live?

    Kelly, I'm so glad to hear you sounding happy and relaxed! What day have you moved your u/s to?

    Belle, it must almost be O time! I'm sure you're getting in heaps of practice this weekend! With the sticks and the BD ROFL!

    Well, I am in that stage of changing my mind about what's happening evey two minutes. I bought five , yes FIVE different brands of HPTs while I was out today, so clearly I am still holding out some hope! (just remembered I also have some lullaby ones here too!!!!) The nausea started up again at about 10am and it is getting progressively worse. I hope it doesn't end in another chuck! As I didn't have any m/s last time, I don't know if that's what this is. It comes in waves, I sort of forget about it, and then it hits me again. I have this feeling in my mouth like I've sucked on a lemon! Weird! Less of the creamy cm today, but it's defintiely still there. The thing that's really making me wonder is the cramps I'm having. Sometimes they're still like af cramps, but I'm also getting some *stretching* pains (only way I can describe it) which are sort of like I had last time. In fact, after pushing a very heavy trolley around Bunnings earlier they got quite bad, which I remember happening previously. It's like my body telling me to rest IYKWIM.

    Gosh, after reading that I really hope I get a BFP, otherwise I have some imagination! Please don't write me off as loopy........not yet anyway! Is anyone else this bad in the tww?
    I'm now thinking that six different brands is overkill, wouldn't you agree? I'm just such a POAS addict! When should I test????????

    Love to all my girlies, Sez xoxo

    Hi Sez,

    I just have to say...you are absolutely fantastic!!! You're certainly not loopy and probably don't remember that I was TERRIBLE during the tww - particularly towards the end!!! It's the most difficult time but you do have to try and trust your instincts. Its funny how you start second guessing yourself though isn't it. After some of the things I posted in here, I was so scared when testing but it all worked out in the end. Just like I know it will for you!!! Try and hang in there and test whenever you're ready to test. We're all here to hold your hand. It is difficult getting a BFN when testing too early though, so bear that in mind. I wish I had of waited a little longer before testing - now it's completely stressed me out with my dates and all but you get that. At the time, I think I was worse than you - so just do what you feel is right and go with it!!!! No-one could have told me to wait and finally getting the BFP was just wonderful - it was nice to know I could trust my instincts again!!!!

    It's certainly sounding good for you though and I'm praying that you're going to announce a BFP really soon.

    Well, not much is happening around my place today. DH is out mowing the lawn like the good husband that he is!! The bloody lawnmower died today, so we had to go buy a new one - not good but we've got heaps of lawn (or should I say weeds), so we really did need it!! The weather is still gorgeous but I think it's going to turn ugly tonight, damn it. I've been loving the sunshine.

    I'm still feeling pretty good about everything. Don't quite know how I'm going to get through next week but hopefully it will go really fast. My next scan is Tuesday week and I just can't wait to get it over with. I think we've told far too many people that I'm pg, so we're getting lots of calls and messages asking how everything is. It's starting to stress me out. Either way I can't seem to win. When I don't tell people I sit there stressing about lying to them and desperately want to share our news so they don't think I'm a completly loopy, then when we do tell people, I feel all this pressure to keep the little thing growing!! Crazy stuff. Nah, not letting it get to me as much at the moment, so all good. Might go have a nap on the couch and prepare myself for the big footy match this afternoon - after the Dockers win last night, the Eagles better play well - we just couldn't handle it over here if the Dockers won and the Eagles lost. I do love them both though but my hearts definitely with the Eagles!!!!

    Take care everyone - I know I promised to do personals but I just don't seem to have the energy at the moment - sorry!!!!

    Hi,

    We just lost our baby to an ect pregnancy and my right tube and I was told that I should give my body 4-6 months before ttc. I know that it has only been 3.5 weeks since it happened and I haven't even had my first AF (sorry tmi), BUT I don't think I can wait that long. Does anybody have any advice?? Thank you for listening.

    Thanks for the warm welcome Jayne and Sez!
    It's really comforting to know I can embark on this journey with others who've had similar experiences. I just know I'll be a mess when I am preggers again-- after two missed m/c's and no previous bubs (the cat and dog don't count right?) I can't say I have much faith in my bod to do what it is supposed to do. I actually kind of wished my tests had shown something so that there would at least be a "plan of attack" next time around. BUT I'm once again getting ahead of myself-- before I start worrying about being UTD I need to actually get duffed. So here we go again!

    Jayne- Jessica sounds like a doll!! Hope she didn't kip for too long this arvo and dream about how she's going to "party" all night!

    Sez- Bestest luck for a and a nice sticky bubba!

    Lisa............HELLO (((echo))) Are you there, or are you hiding?!!!!!!!!

    Where is everyone else this weekend? It sure is a quiet one!

    Thanks for reassuring me Kelly! I feel better, but still like a bit of a loop!

    Hope, I definitely count my staffy as my baby.......in fact I call her my baby girl all the time! I know what you mean about the test results, but honestly, it really is for the best that they all came back okay. GL getting duffed hun!

    Welcome Kez! I don't know about the waiting time after an ectopic, but I sure understand your impatience - I think I'm the president of that club! I have a great friend who suffered an ectopic though, I'll ask her what she was told. Lisa might be able to help you too.......if she ever arrives! (JK Lisa!) If you DO have to wait awhile, please hang around in here. I'm supposedly not ttc yet (not that you'd know!) but I have found the gals in here to be just fantastic, so supportive and wonderful.

    Well I am one hungry hungry hippo! Even though I ate a really good dinner last night (despite feeling sick, in fact still felt sick when I went to sleep) I woke up at 5am STARVING. I managed to hold out until 6.30am to eat brekky, but then couldn't go back to sleep! Just waiting to see if the nausea kicks in again today. Cramping has settled, is that a good or bad thing? Trying to be patient, but have now reached the foot tapping stage...............fidget fidget! Well, I'm going to go and buy a new telly today, so that should distract me for awhile! And I might hit Eastland or Knox while I'm at it! Maybe I could buy some more HPTs? JK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No, really, I think I need a new ensemble for the races. Although, if I'm going to be pg I'll have to think about what sort of dress.....see, no matter what I do it always comes back to the tww!

    Happy Sunday lovelies!
